Small Successes is a weekly feature I have seen around lately. It is hosted by Faith and Family Live. Between this and Quick Takes Friday, maybe I can have a bit more regularity on the blog here.
So, here goes:
1. I was able to get the middle 5 of my children ready to go sledding, with boots, snow pants, coats, ski gloves, hats and scarves, in 10 minutes. Now this is momentous because usually, no one knows where there stuff is, or the older ones who don't play outside as much don't have anything to fit them. But I had reserved some larger snow pants for a time such as this, knew right where they were, and they fit. Nothing makes me feel more on top of things than being able to put my hands on something I am looking for with little delay.
2. I finally bought 4 cleaning caddies so I can put all the cleaning supplies together in the proper areas of the house. Our cleaning routing gets slowed down something fierce when everyone is wandering around looking for the window cleaner or tub foam.
3. I Cleaned The Stove. I mean really cleaned it. Scoured, soaked, scrubbed, even crevices cleaned out with a tooth pick. It is so clean, I do not want to cook on it. Oh, I cleaned out the microwave and the fridge. Scrubbed, again, used a toothpick in the crevices. Ahhh, much better.
4. One extra ~ I got some Dreft and washed the baby clothes. We are in the home stretch now, and I have a packed February, so it really isn't too early. Next, I need to clean out my icon studio, move most of it down to the icon workshop room, and begin to transform it into a baby room. I'll need every day I have left to get this done. Maybe that will be next week's small success!
